it's no secret that a favorite pass time in our home is golf. Jason is thrilled when the girls want to come out and chip with him in the back yard. ( this happens like 3-4 nights a week) he always tells me Anna is pretty good. but, i'm pretty much a golf moron, so i blindly believe. i just say, "that's great." well, even a moron knows that a hole in one is GREAT!!!
way to go Anna. your one step closer to that college scholarship your grandpa is always talking about!

my zucchinis really didn't perform this year, they were late and then all seemed to rot out. but this one appeared out of nowhere. it was so big Avery couldn't even hold it.
i also have some watermelon and cantaloupe making a late showing....any advice?

spirit days are back! today was silly sock day, and Madeline went all out. these are some silly, silly socks!
i get a lot of summoning from this girl. "mom, take a picture of me like this!" how can i resist?
this little girl can't wait to be a big school girl as well! she is so interested in all that the big girls do.

so we were in California for Aunt Corbynn's wedding, and there will be a more thorough post on that soon. but the second reason we visited was to get some much needed beach time! and while we did that, Jason's wildest dreams finally came true. his girls were not afraid of the water, and loved bodyboarding!!!!
our little gidget!
this little beach baby finally got over her fear of the sand!
no one was around to take a picture of this, Avery loves to pick and pull at my face. i think it is an expression of love.
love these high-fives!
we did some shell collecting too. each girl found many and we will be using them in some crafts soon. any ideas?

we got in to my parents' house at 2am on Thursday, and then left at 9 so wedding prep could begin. after a fun breakfast at Arthur's (Jason had never been. what?) we were a little stumped on what to do for an hour before we could check into our hotel. then it hit us. we were driving with the windows down. it was cool outside. we could do whatever we wanted!!!!!! we went to the park, the outside park!
Avery loves the "baby swing." she could stay in here for hours on end.
"look mom, the slide isn't burning my rear!"
Madeline is the sweetest big sister. unfortunately, Avery is a bit of a tyrranical baby sister. she takes so much advantage of Maddie's sweetness. she'll grow out of the terrible twos, right? here they share a moment of harmony. see, Avery isn't kicking, hitting, pulling hair, or biting. what a happy day!
my sweet little model, always has a pose she wants me to capture!
we just don't have parks like this in the east valley, everything is too new. i love all the old archetecture, like these "castle steps", the old shady trees, the green grass, cool air. okay, summertime in AZ makes me a little homesick. especially when it's starting to be autumn everywhere else!

i tell myself i'll take pictures of the girls artwork instead of keeping it all. i usually end up keeping it for a while. until it falls apart, or starts overcrowding everything in my office. here's the latest:
